Can I run a Pixy2 with a Pi Zero W?


#1

Can I run a Pixy2 on a wireless Pi Zero? I have the Pi camera module on the Pi Zero and want to use Pixy to maneuver the camera into place to take a snapshot with the PiCamera.

I am assuming that I will need a small hub for initial programming, and then connect the pixy to the Pi Zero usb port?

Hi Neil,
That’s correct – hooking up Pixy via USB is the recommended route for Raspberry Pi. Check out this guide:

pixymon won’t compile on the pi zero. It fails due to the arm processor on the Zero is not supported.

HI Neil,
Hmm… please provide the compilation error.
